Enjoy your day

I've been busy behind the scenes, i moved everything out of my craftroom, and back again, but in a move organised fashion. I filled five large black sacks with rubbish and i still have lots of sorting to do.
I had a sewing machine for Christmas, (actually i got it in October), it hadn't even come out of the box yet, but i now have a home for it, yippee!!, so i had my first go at machine stitching onto a card, only a straight(ish) line , but as i get more used to it, i may even attempt to go round corners. :)


Anyway here's the card featuring my machine stitched line. I used this fabulous set from The Cutting Cafe', called SENTIMENTS STEMS AND FLOWER TOPS . I stamped the Happy and Birthday onto the leaves.

Beautiful. The small touches of red really make the card pop.

That's a really pretty card. The butterfly is such a nice touch! (I love butteflies!)

Very nice! Your stitching looks great! I did some stitching on one of my cards and then the thread came out of the machine. Once I figure out how to re-thread the machine, I'll do it again. :)
Love your card!
